Service
 
BBQ fixes are sated at this “funky” Fort Greene standby offering “mouthwatering” , “smoky” pit meats washed down with “top-shelf bourbons” ; maybe it's a bit “rough around the edges” , but factor in “budget” prices and most will happily “eat while standing” “'cuz it's so packed” (especially “pre-BAM and Barclays events” ).

When it comes to food, it is great! but I got the impression that male servers don't want to work there. No greetings. The place wasn't busy but It almost took 10 min to place an order. Had to ask twice to get ketchup and additional plates for ribs. It can be a whole lot nicer place with better service.

The Smoke Joint is fantastic. I went with a group of people so I was able to try a variety of dishes. The ribs and the chicken were perfectly done and delicious. The beans were also quite good. They also had excellent drinks, including one with ginger beer that I loved. I highly recommend this place.

Ah this place was lackluster. The chicken was dry and was kissing the smoke flavor and salt! The chicken also had a burnt skin like it was placed on a grill and not in a smoker. The greens was a spicy mess, the Mac and cheese looked and tasted like the roux was not cooked long enough as the cheese sauce was clumpy,grainy and coagulated by the time it reached me. The only things I enjoyed was my drink and the corn bread. The wait staff should have been more attentive given the amount of people in there but I didn't go for them. I went for the food and was sadly disappointed. Le sigh will not be back again.
